There have been lots of managers over the years at Chelsea and all of them have had one thing in common, guess what?
All of these managers promised to give youth and academy players a chance at the biggest stage and develop them into another John Terry. Was anyone able to do that? Not even close!
But now, we have got a manager who is doing everything he can to promote the academy and loan stars in to the first 11. In the last game against Leicetser, who, by the way, are no slouches, but the defending Premier League Champions, we had 3 academy players namely Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek and Aina on the pitch.
A lot of us couldn’t even believe our eyes. But that’s how things have been under Conte so far; unexpectedly positive!
